The Power of Perspective: Success through Collaboration

When we fall into a situation with a problem we can’t solve, it feels impossible. Seeking insight from others with different perspectives can make a solution quickly appear. Vinh uses the art of magic (a problem that the general public doesn’t have the solution to) to take you on an exploration of several performances. He invites you to collaborate, share your perspective, and discover the solutions to how they were done. Vinh affirms how you can collaborate with others and their different perspectives to become the problem-solving mastermind of your career and life!
